NOTRE DAME, Indiana - The University of Notre Dame has replaced in-person classes with online schooling for the next two weeks amid a spike in positive coronavirus cases of people on campus.

Since classes resumed August 10, Notre Dame has recorded what it called a "steady increase" in positive rates among students, mainly seniors living off-campus, the university said.  As of midday Tuesday (August 18), 147 people have tested positive among the 927 tested since Aug. 3.

The university said it traced cases to off-campus parties or gatherings.  

All but one of the positive cases involved students and most lived off-campus.
